generator. she did not turn the lights out. in other news, john mccain says he's still not sure how he's going to vote on chuck hagel but he opposes a filibuster for chuck hagel and karl rove is forming yet another super pac to take on fellow republicans. would you buy a used car from this man? i don't think so. why anybody would trust him with a dime after he blew $400 million the last time around. we'll also take a look at president obama yesterday in minneapolis saying people have to decide do they stand with cops or kids. all of that coming up right here on current tv. >> nine. >> this is what 27 tons of marijuana looks like.

of defense. the pledge by arizona senator john mccain and others likely means hagel has enough votes should another republican decide to filibuster his bid. activists in syria are claiming over 270 people have been killed in nationwide violence since sunday. the syrian observatory for human rights says at least 90 people died across syria on monday after some 180 people lost their lives building was bombed in the northern city of aleppo. the head of refugee operations for the middle east and north africa warned syria's violence is causing system of destruction. >> it is an appalling situation in syria. all of these figures probably are not capturing the true story of how syria, the people, but also the syria the country, are facing systematic destruction. >> for diplomats recently have claimed a small breakthrough in the impasse between syrian rebels and president al-assad after opposition leader said he is open to sitting down with al- assad's aids. iran in president ahmadinejad has arrived in cairo for a three-day visit to attend a summit of the organization of islamic cooperation. it is
the establishment. the karl roves, the john mccains say oh, surely now we'll get behind the gang of 8 and do the immigration reform. they can't get the house contingent to support even that, which is like a knife at the heart of the republican party demographically. so it shows this will be a long battle within the gop that will rage on for quite a while. not least because the biggest donors are not necessarily in tune with the base. some are, like the coke brothers, but others on wall street are not with the base like on immigration, abortion, gay rights. >> taxes only. >> taxes only. >> it will be really interesting to see on guns, thinking about president obama out in minnesota today with all the cops standing behind him. on background checks in particular, 92 public support for universal background checks. if republicans can't figure out a way to support something that has 92% to support the republicans and democrat also on that, i think, i don't know what happens next on them. it will be fascinating. >> it will be fun to watch from our point of view. >> okay, you can turn your tv back o
, but john mccain got involved in this. he got onto the twitter and said, quote, so ahmadinejad wants to be the first iranian in space. wasn't he just there last week? i can warn you, calling people monkeys can be problematic. after receiving some criticism about the tweet, mccain tweeted again, clarifying it was a joke and telling people to lighten up. >> it has been 550 days since the u.s. lost its top credit rating. what are we doing to get it back? president obama signed an act that allows the house to pass a budget by mid-april or their pay will be weld. >> and today, the six-day hostage stand' off in alabama is over tonight. the 5-year-old boy named ethan is safe. the abductor is dead after authorities entered the underground bunker where the trauma played out. it brings back painful memories to the victims of another kidnapping 36 years ago. three men hijacked a bus load of 26 school children. they forced the driver and children to climb into a hole in the ground into a moving van which was buried underground in a quarry. the kidnappers then left their hostages buried for 16 ho

to support hagel's nomination, but the other three, richard burr, john mccain, and todd coburn have all told us they would oppose a filibuster if it came to that. we don't know when the vote will happen. first he has to go through committee. that will likely happen later this week. the senate vote will happen shortly after that. this is, again, some really enterprising reporting from our producers, ted stray felt and rachel bashaw. >>> looking better for chuck hagel. wouldn't have to worry about a filibuster. even though someone like john mccain wouldn't vote for a filibuster, it's at least clear to me based on his questioning and statements, he won't vote at the same time to confirm him either. >> correct. that's correct. when it comes to the floor, would he vote against -- potentially vote against. he hasn't said that for sure. potentially vote against hagel's nomination. the question at this point is whether or not hagel would be blocked altogether, whether or not they could get to that point. mccain has said he would not participate in that kind of filibuster. >> maybe we can forget abou
